Worth paying a little more

I have had a number of frustrations at other places I have stayed and there were none of those here. The room was spacious, including the shower room. The area was quiet. The hosts were friendly but not intrusive. The heating system was adjustable and quiet. The breakfast was good quality. There was a nice lounge area if required. The location is great (assuming your are familiar with the hills of Shanklin seaside/

4/5 Good

Nice B&B in hilly location.

B&B was nice and clean, nice welcome and the breakfast was more than adequate for the start of the day. However, the double bed in our room would need a new mattress as could really feel the springs and was not really that comfortable, sorry to be negative.

Pros: Nice quiet location but steep walk to the promenade although there is a lift that takes you all the way. Breakfast was nice.

Cons: The double bed in room 5 will need a new mattress or at the least a topper.

Location: Nice quiet location, steep hill to the promenade where there are some good restaurants with evening entertainment.

We had a lovely short break here the triple room was lovely with a separate single sleeping area and delightful en-suite. The proprietors were friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble.
